Homemade Cards ~ Paper Crafting Thursday!

The winners of last week's paper crafting are Emily and Jillian. Please email me your addresses and I'll get your prizes in the mail!

This week's card project is very simple and is perfect for large patterned scrapbook paper.

You will need:
-Blank 6 1/2" x 5" notecard
-6 1/4" x 4 3/4" rectangle of scrapbook paper
-Approx. 2" circle of scrapbook paper or cardstock. You can cut it with decorative scissors or use a paper punch.
-20" ribbon

Cover blank notecard with scrapbook paper.

I shaded the edges of the scalloped circle with a foam ink pad.

Just quickly rub the edges, as shown.

Cut a small slit in card fold with craft knife.

Stamp or add a sticker to scalloped circle and punch a small hole. Thread ribbon through slit and then through tag. Secure with knot.

I also added a tiny pearl gem.

Send to a friend!

~More Homemade Cards~

We have another birthday at our house today. Benjamin is now 8 years old and we have a fun day planned with new toys, pudding cups with neighborhood friends, pizza for dinner and a gummy worm and oreo cake. I'll share pictures soon!

A few more things I've made recently...



Items can be found in my Etsy Shop! Thank you for stopping by for a visit!

Paper Craft Fun: Post any kind of paper craft (card, bookmark, tag, banner, journal, etc.) on your blog between now and next week and come sign Mr. Linky. Next Thursday, I will draw two of the names and the winners will receive supplies for a homemade card: blank notecard, envelope, and an assortment of scrapbook paper, stickers (or stamped images), and ribbon. Link back here in your post, so that others will know where to join in the fun, too!

Happy Birthday to Benjamin! He is one VERY handsome young man. And since I used to teach 3rd grade, 8 years old is about my most favorite, besides the toddler stage. He looks like one terrific young man. I hope he has a great day.

Happy birthday to Benjamin!

The cards are all lovely. Thanks for the tip about going around the edges with an ink pad. Someone else told me they used a paintbrush and ink pad, but this sounds much simpler.

Wanita said...

Thanks for the card. It's beautful!

Oh I love all your ideas. I love the idea of covering a premade card. But I am going to try covering a real card. Let's see how it works. Maybe I can post later. Got a new camera! Yea.
Of to cut and paste!
